Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The daVinci robotic system significantly simplifies complex surgical cases. One downfall is the system is bulky and must be carefully aligned with the intended surgical anatomy. We aim to describe the planning processes necessary to assure positive outcomes and optimal ergonomics. Methods: Upon review of all robotic cases performed at NMCSD between Sept, 2008 and Sept, 2010, an evaluation was made of lessons learned as it relates to surgeon preferences, anesthetic considerations, assistant surgeon ergonomics, and nursing access. Data were separated depending on the location of the intended procedure, and surgical service performing the procedure. Results: From Sept, 2008 to present, 216 robotic operations were performed (163 urologic, 26 general surgical, and 27 gynecologic). There were 17 back-to-back cases, with an average turnover time of 43 minutes. The shortest turnover was 24 minutes. A side docking technique was used in over 30 cases. Room configurations for robot cases include: over the shoulder, between the legs, side-dock, the robot placed on one side or the other of the room, side of the patients back, and set up on the side of the abdomen. All members of OR staff must communicate prior to the procedure regarding the approach and surgeon expectations in daVinci robot cases. Conclusion: Robotic surgery is a growing technology. The advantages are clear and improving, however, the technology represents a unique learning curve for operating room staff. It is important to have a dedicated team to negotiate these issues.
